supports the legalization of marijuana. joining me now for insight on how the obama administration might move forward on this very tricky issue is rolling stone national affairs correspondent tim dickinson whose article "obama's pot problem" is in the magazine's current issue. welcome back inside "the war room." >> great to be with you. >> jennifer: the people have spoken. obviously. in at least two states. and pollwise they think that marijuana should be legal. but federal agencies like the d.e.a. maintain enforcement over controlled substances act obviously. so i want you to listen first to an exchange between the head of the d.e.a., michelle leonhard and colorado democratic congressman jared polis from earlier this year. let's play this. >> i believe alls illegal drugs are -- >> is methamphetamine worse for somebody's health than marijuana? >> i don't think any illegal drug -- >> is heroin worse for someone's health than marijuana? >> again all -- >> yes no, or i don't know. if you don't know, you can look this up. you should know this as chief administrator for the drug enforcement a

obama administration said bashar is a dead man walking. a year later we can see that this may be the end game, but it has nothing to do with what we do and what we say. and indeed president obama gave hillary clinton secretary of state to promise that the cavalry was on the way and they never showed up. >> eliot: what i heard was there was not much they could do to affect the dynamics of this revolution. >> they were skillful in the way they depicted this fight. the only thing we could do is to have boots on the ground. the syrian people did not want boots on the ground. they wanted help, a free fire zone and no-fly zone and they wanted help, and we offered none. we offered none. now that the syrian rebellion may be on the verge of victory we come in with our conditions and second guess the syrian rebellion and say these are terrorists, we can't support them. we can't trust them with aircraft missiles. it's a odd morality that went want to deny people when they're using jets to level cities. >> eliot: the administration has been slow in the at least in response to the syrian revoluti

are worried about. there is all this talk whether the obama administration will crackdown on colorado and washington, and not let them do it. >> no. >> cenk: how do you think that will play out. >> first of all he doesn't have to worry about an election. obama has tipped his hand when he legalized the gay marriage. so all he has to do is reschedule pot from scheduled one to schedule two then it becomes a medical issue and then the states can decide themselves if they want it legal or not. >> cenk: tommy, he broke records on drug dispensary raids his first term. he appointed the bush appointee the head of the dea. >> he's also a black guy from hawai'i who used to surf. >> cenk: most importantly, he used to smoke. >> that's what i'm saying into that's what drives me crazy. at least the last three presidents smoked marijuana. they didn't serve any jail time. they became president of the united states. and you served nine months. >> not only a pot smoker, but cocaine user, george bush. >> cenk: yes. >> the hypocrisy are bedfellows. >> cenk: i heard you took the plea deal to spare your son

slaughter people enmass. i think we have said ad nauseam what the obama administration is proposing -- >> techniquely the nazis didn't want to kill the pour -- >> stephanie: thank you, jim. >> which would make them extreme right-wingers. >> stephanie: i'm sure it is so noted at news busters, as they are busily transcripting the new transcript as we talk about the old transcript. no miller prefers to conjure up ominous images of woodchipers just over the horizon. whatever it takes to keep her amused. >> well, yeah kind of the point of the show.

became the master using executive power. president obama faces the same problem as we look at it, the range of issues that he has to deal with. take climate issues, for example. is there anything that he can do on that particular issue administratively? >> yes, i think in the second term in particular you have to learn to use the full sweep of the power you have under the constitution and the laws of the united states. you mentioned climate specifically. if you look at what the president has been able to accomplish it's really through the executive authority. he raised the average for automobiles and light trucks and now for heavy trucks. that's contributed significantly to reduction in co2 emissions in this country. president von trap kept his copenhagen pledge to keep his reduction on a basic 2005 level by 2020. that's because he has taken action not because a lot of has happened on the congressional side. on the recovery bill they did put in a fair amount of money and they doubled it. i think the first order of business he has got to complete regulation on new power plants, an

obama administration said they will no longer defend doma. >> it took them awhile to get to that. >> it took the president awhile to come around on this issue. but john boehner and eric cantor have said they will continue to defend doma. from the house point of view. >> that's a real contentious thick thing. how about the second one? >> the second one, more surprising, is proposition 8, the california 2008 amendment that ended marriages, a few months earlier. that case in which the 9th circuit court of appeals had struck down the amendment is unconstitutional. the court said they are going to take that on. >> that's a much more direct challenge because the supreme court could decide the section 3 of doma is constructiontutional. with this case with prop something else 8, if they take the case on its merits and look at the constitutionalty of proposition 8, they are going to at least be looking at changing who can marry in calendar the next day and even more broad and make a decision that impacts other states that have marriage bans. >> bill: so this -- and just to point out, the attorne

. government stopped defending it. >> bill: the administration will not defend it. eric holder, barack obama say no. >> not doing it, right. they've spent $1.5 million over the past two years the house g.o.p. and paul clement spent $1.5 million defending this. that's your tax dollars going to work fellas. just want you to know. and they've reached their cap now. so apparently they can't do more. so i don't know what they're going to do. >> bill: they'll give them more money. >> they'll have to go back and get more money. it is really amazing that that kind of money is going into defending this thing. >> bill: i don't want to be defending doma. >> right. >> so the other case they took -- everybody expected them to take the doma case, right? it has been declared unconstitutional ten times. that section in particular. and but the other case was the proposition 8 case. most legal observers thought that the supreme court would stay away from taking what's known as the perry case, commonly called the perry or prop 8 case. this case is -- the case where california voters invalidated same-sex marria
